And finally after long search SAR readers found these pics on Digicameinfo! These are 100% real (confirmed via my trusted sources). The image on top shows the 24 megapixel A7 with the 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens. The image below shows the 36 megapixel A7r with the 35mm f/2.8 Zeiss lens. The 28-70mm lens is quite unexpected big (and well made). A si told you before the A7 uses not the same A99 sensor and the A7r not the same D800E sensor (without AA filter). This is a new version made for these cameras and to avoid issues on corners because of the very short flange distance. I hope the A7r can beat the D800E IQ performance..not bad for a camera that costs $800 less than the D800E ($3000 here at Amazon). The body is weathersealed and has a Pentax LX “tank-solid” feeling.
